Story Cities is an Arachne Press project, bringing together 42 writers and 51 stories about the city – any city, every city, in flash of under 500 words.
The brief for the book was: no names, no recognisable landmarks, and to fit one of the themes – termini, transport, hotels, cafes, squares and parks, markets, main streets, side streets and crossroads.
When I started thinking about it, my reaction was, no, this isn’t what makes a city, it’s the people.
Here’s some video of my contribution to the book, Foundation Myth, read at Greenwich Book Festival, same story, slightly different take.
and at the book launch, at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, also in Greenwich.
